Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

Vitara overheating I own a 2005 Grand Vitara 5 door wagon with 200,000 kms on speedometer. Overheating problem, likely due to ruptured head gasket. Problem now is to remove the cylinder head you have to remove the four fuel injectors and two of them appear to be rusted and impossible to remove with a slide hammer. Any suggestions?

The cost of many of these units is quite high, compared to what they used to be. Still, the choice of new, reman, or even one from a boneyard is your choice!
Consider that a new unit is just that.eEverything including the case is new. A remanufactured unit is "iffy" and depends upon the quality standards or the manufacturer... Some only replace failed items, clean it up and let it fly... Better shops, replace not only failed items but items which are slightly worn or prone to failure. (a good rebuild includes brushes, regulator, end bearings, diodes and anything else they deem necessary) When buying a "boneyard" part, try to get one with low miles, preferably one that looks as if it was recently replaced, or one that was in the latest year vehicle that fits your application. As I said the choice is yours!!!
Good luck!

I suggest either a "Haynes" or "Chilton" repair manual. They are both very informative concerning complete engine tear down.

there are three probable causes that may result to overheating one inadequate circulation of coolant within the cooling system. The radiator is clogged with dirt some stems are closed.try to flush the radiator using rad flushing fluid. Second improper bleeding of trap air within the cooling system. Third the water pump blades are worn out inadequate circulation of coolant.

bubbling when the coolant is full indicates a head gasket problem. have a compression test done to check for gasket/cracked head. have a flow test done on the radiator as the cores may be blocked reducing coolant flow.

Overheating and losing coolant fluid


In my parts book it calls for a 16lb cap.
You may have damaged the head gasket before the radiator was replaced. Once an engine overheats, the gasket can be stretched and the head warped. The engine could be burning the coolant.

2007 Grand Vitara with 110,000 miles the intake valve on number 5 clyinder is leaking causing a misfire. Is this a typical problem?


Are the manifolds integrated or separate? Either way, I would have 2 gaskets installed between the head/or both sides. Get the problem fixed and sell asap! Many miles left but there may be a problem with warping of the heads.

03 Suzuki Grand Vitara dsl overheating!


Its probably not boiling what you are getting is preasure from the engine which can be caused by a faulty head gasket but as you have that changed then it must be a crack or warp in the cylinder head. Get the head preasure checked for cracks and warp. If ita warped get it skimmen if cracked you will need to replace.
